You don't know nasty. Well, except that you are nasty. I guess it's hard for you to converse with humans capable of independent thought without crying through your abuse button.

For crying out loud monkey....you didn't understand his statement or all the others since. That's why it takes so much space to have you in a conversation. You're so left wired you can't get it.

More proof you can't understand the conversation monkey. It's not that equal opportunity produces equal outcome. That's what your side is insisting on, and if it doesn't work, lower the scores or otherwise cheat. All in the name of diversity, affirmative action and inclusiveness.

Just FYI monkey....equal oportunity doesn't give equal outcome. It's obvious when you look at your posts (assuming you had the same opportunities the rest of us had) and our posts, which indicate some level of comprehension and reality. If you were 70ish and black, and from the South, I could overlook it, but you're not.

What we seem to have here is a lack of comprehension. Ignorant racism.

I should mention that congress (with a horrific approval rating of approx 14%) are re-elected at an astounding rate of 92-93%. So, who is really stupid?

Travis, If you've been watching the nonsense in Wash. D.C. You will effortlessly realize that congress is where dopes (who "vote") put dopes on a gravy train!

Sterotypical prog. If they don't run when you call them racist, go to spell check police. It's the last resort.

Sorry, but public educatin can't be as good as it's ever been if the end result is poor education. I do agree about starting at home, however. Being conservative, I see most problems stemming from prog demands, and policies. When a kid is suspended for making gun sounds, you know there is no Republican involved with that insanity. Soon there will be no more than a few words about the wars, just that America was the badk guy.

Donkeyboy- you seem to be unaware of the fact that affirmative action has evolved from equal opportunity to equal outcome.

Once again, public education is as good as it has ever been. America, in the majority, just believes that they have no part in their own children's success. Teachers are blamed for all students downfalls. Look around you, kids today have zero respect, and no moral compass compared to years past. I can go on and on, but it's not worth it. People need to mind their own business and teach their own*****families.

Hard wired progs. Who else would think race based privilege is not racism. UNLESS of course you are white. That would make it racist. Unbelieveable.

Then I doubt you could comprehend an explanation. Let's try. You tell people of color they need special consideration and standards because of their ethnicity. You tell them because their ancestors were discrimnated against, they are not only dumber than white people, but discriminating against white people will make them smarter and richer. Then they can teach their children that. And then....everything will be hunky dory, and racism will be over because of who is on the receiving end. If that's not enough, you can join monkeyboy.

And your ignorance is on display daily. You are the type who thinks they are too stupid to make it on their own, so have to be given favors. You are the racist.

50s, I'm BLESSED, not oppressed. On another note, I once argued to no end because I checked "other" on my child's school forms, and wrote in "human". They didn't like that. I pointed out that considering race was illegal according to federal statutes. I guess it's wrong when convenient to the government. Like, discriminating based on gender is illegal, but only 18 Y.O. males must sign up for selective service. Discrimination based on age is illegal, but they have varying ages when one is eligible for full Social Security benefits. I recently saw on TV where a firm actually had on a job posting that "Caucasians may not apply". Bet the gov't won't do anything about that.

If you think affirmative action isn't racism, you're as dumb as I thought you were. Two generations of blacks have been kissed through college and when they get a PhD they use it to say they are oppressed.

Why does race even have to be on an application? Or sex for that matter. It should solely be based on need and academic promise based on things such as grades, school involvement and sat scores.

Scally, I once wore a "Gator" sweatshirt into Governors Square Mall in Tallahassee (FSU territory). I was accosted in the parking lot by "Bubba", and advised that such action wasn't wise. "A fella could get beat up wearing a shirt like that around here." I asked him if he'd prefer my Penn State shirt, to which he replied, "I reckon we can live with that."

Well, why don't we solve th problem by promoting racism? Give high priority to minority students being selected. (that automatically lowers that white privilege) If they drop out, or only go for degrees in studying social BS and are useless, at this point what does it really matter?

Fedup didn't even read a full sentence of what jamestownresident posted.

To be fair though, jamestownresident (to add to my last post), most teachers are parents. So the overlap exists. Just like the government is made up of people. Teachers, public education, government etc. aren't the problem. The problem is people.
